    Thank you Jumuah, but these were all the same software updates from the mygarmin.com website. Two worked fine, the third just hung with "Loading Loader" displayed. Tried to reset by holding power and touching upper left screen (as well as every other corner) and it does the same. Looks like I'll have to send it back to Garmin?

Sounds like the system software may have been corrupted during the registration/update process. I don't know if it's necessary, but I always click on "Safely Remove Hardware" before disconnecting any USB device. Did you try turning the unit off and reconnecting it to your computer? Does it show up as a drive on your computer? If so, maybe you can run the Garmin WebUpdater and reinstall the system software.

Try this :
Just slide the power button over and hold until the screen goes blank. Then power on. It came on with a 'software loading' then proceeded to boot up regularly.

Hello,

Ia it the same update you are installing on the Garmin Nuvi 1370T, if yes, i will like you to know that each map update may only be applied to one GPS unit. so if you are fortunate to have been able to update 2 fine, so note that, the possible cause of the third not loading is because the update is just meant for one GPS, so you will need to follow the previous procedure to get the update to install on the third GPS.

Take care.

    Hello,

    Since you said you have try to reset it and yet same problem still occur, i will advice you send it back to Garmin, because this might be be factory fault that needs to be fix by them. so i advice you return it to them for replacement.

    Take care.
